for by the payroll tax. that's called -- a kind of single payer. but the republicans for years have been saying -- no we don't want it that way. we want private insurers. we want a profit motive the we want a market. and indeed if you look back, historically, richard mixston came up with a proposal that was very, very close to the affordable care act. democrats didn't like it. it wasn't close enough to social security and medicare. mitt romney, the reason the president is -- in massachusetts is because obama care was modeled exactly after romney care in massachusetts. including the individual man date, which mitt romney after he signed that into law and was asked where did the mandate come from. he said an idea from the heritage foundation. and i heard from it through newt gingrich. that's where -- that's where this comes, this comes from. so for republicans now to turn around and say, oh, we think this is just awful. we don't like any of this. well it its beyond ironic. it is sort of -- tragic and combic com comic. >> secretary sebelius -- >> the president made it clear. and our policy was put
on the tax policy. all of a sudden under the rules of the senate you need a supermajority to pass tax increases. if you're a pro choice woman especially in light of the fact that with a current make-up of the supreme court, you be concerned you're going to lose your right to access and safe abortion. so, again, the fact of the matter is, you know -- >> connect those dots for me, though. connect those dots. is the argument this? that if you muck with what the current filibuster rules are, you essentially begin to slide down a slippery slope, which will mean in the future republicans will muck with it in all kinds of radical ways? >> exactly. you're playing the long ball. if you're the democratic leadership looking out for the institution as a whole, you've got to be concerned about what may occur in the future. because after all, you know, you can't guarantee -- >> in the minority some day. >> yeah. you can't guarantee. >> here's the problem with the argument. right now, we seeing violations of all kinds of norms. the amount of filibusters has spiked. you have a crazy situation which r
like taxes and less spending. that led to a gap of $680 billion. guess what. it takes revenues and spending cuts to cut the deficit. they ought to work together on that. $2.08 billion is how much americans are spending on candy for halloween this year. never mind the declarations for the national retail federation. they expect an additional $2.6 billion on costumes and more people in my neighborhood i swear do halloween decorations than for the holidays. 75 days is how many we have before the primary for the special election for the late bill young and florida primary will be key to see the better position for the march 11 general election. the special election of one of the most competitive seats left in the house of representatives. 16 is how many democratic women senators all in fact signed in a private letter to hillary clinton urging her to run for president in 2016. they spilled the beans about it and a list in new york on monday, sources say barbara boxer led the effort that included other names mentioned as candidates including elizabeth warren. saying hillary runs, the
will also qualify for tax credits to make the coverage even more affordable. we know that consumers are eager to purchase this coverage, and to the millions of americans who have attempted to use healthcare.gov to shop and enroll in insurance care coverage, i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. we know how desperately you need affordable coverage. i want to assure you that healthcare.gov can and will be fixed and we are working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience that you deserve. we are seeing improvements each week and by the end of november the experience on the site will be smooth for the vast majority of users. over the past month, millions of visited healthcare.gov to take a look at new health care coverage under the affordable care act. in that time, nearly 700,000 applications for coverage have been submitted across the nation. more than half of those are in the federal marketplace alone. this tremendous interest confirms that american people are looking for quality affordable health care coverage. we know that the c
is through a tax provision, where if your employer pays your cash, you pay taxes on it and if he pays in health insurance, you don't pay tax. this reduces revenue by $300 billion a year. if it were a government program, it would be one of the largest within the federal government. the way the subsidy is structured, the higher the tax rate, the more it is worth. ted cruz, his wife is a highly paid investment banker, they get their insurance through a cadillac plan at goldman sachs and it cost $40,000 a year in 2009. to get a sense, family health insurance would cost 15,000 or 16,000, well more than twice as expensive as normal. the tax benefit is worth about $15,000. now the cost to insure a family of four on medicaid at that time was about $11,000. so that it's not that their health plan cost more than medicaid but the part subsidized by taxpayers cost more than the entirety of medicare coverage. what the affordable care act does is shift around the subsidies, it takes the money and puts it to people who need it either because they have low incomes or high health needs and that's bad
for the subsidy and then once we reconcile these records, they get taxed the money back off of their refund. and so this is what i mean when i say rude awakenings. people are signing up for insurance. they're getting tax credit subsidies funded by taxpayers. the irs is already telling us they're confused about how to do this. you're not telling us whether or not you're proactively determining whether, say, an under 26-year-old is actually eligible for the subsidies you're trying to sell them and the problem is once we learn whether or not they were eligible and if they weren't, people in good faith will be signing up for subsidies that they're not eligible for. >> i think you're asking a different question, which is are we doing 100% income verification on everyone. >> and subsidy eligibility verification. >> yes. so part of the question in the application process is are you depending on your parents, on your parents tax plan so that is part of the questioning that goes on and if so we move them in that direction. more importantly, part of what you're asking is the income verification, whic
is that over 10% of america's largest companies pay zero percent tax rate. i would like to know where the big target shooter stands on that. does he think that's fair for average americans? that 10 percent of meramerica's largest companies pay zero percent? never answers those kinds of questions because the conservative media protects those folks. cruz cares about protecting his big money corporate interests, and he's always at work. he wants those folks to put him in office. and you know what, as of late, there is no better example than his most recent stunt. pay attention, folks. ted cruz is blocking president obama's nominee for chairman of the federal communications commission. now, the president has nominated ex tell com industry lobbyist tom wheeler. good guy. wants him to head up the fcc. now, of course, there are five seats on the federal communications commission, and three of them are vacant. and, of course, they're looking for some good democrats, because that's how it works when you have a democratic president. wheeler is a democrat, and republicans are worried that he might, wait
affordable health care as everybody else. a hot of people will qualify for new tax credits under this law, that will bring down costs even further. so that if you lose your job, or you start a new business, or you're self-employed or you're a young person trying several jobs until you find that one that sticks. you're going to be able to be insured. insurance that goes with you. and gives you freedom to pursue whatever you want. without fear that accident or illness will derail your dreams. this marketplace is open now. insurance companies are competing for that business. the deal is good, the prices are low. but let's face it, we've had a problem. a website hasn't worked the way it's supposeded to. over these last couple of weeks. and as a consequence, a lot of people haven't had a chance to see just how good the prices for quality health insurance through these marketplaces really are. now ultimately, this website, healthcare.gov, will be the easiest way to shop for and buy these new plans, because you can see all these plans right next to each other and compare prices and see what kind
. but there has to be revenue on the table. his budget costs seniors more on medicare and gives tax breaks to millionaires. well, what is that? we want medicare over millionair millionaires. >> seems we would be readjudicating the 2012 election altogether. i want to ask you, in the budget process, i know there was a call. it was reported that yourself and leader reid and a number of others, democratic leaders with the president, kind of all on the same page going into the budget process. and then this week, we read on wednesday that the president has said he is flexible about whether or not revenues can be on the table. and i know you've said revenues need to be on the table. harry reid has said revenues need to be on the table. are you confident that the president is going to, you know, stay with where the democratic caucus is on that issue? >> i think we'll stay together. if you have revenue on the table, you come to a bigger agreement to reduce the deficit, to grow the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note
to repair roads but they think it's difficult to push taxes up on the gas price so they're looking at other ways. it's a user pays approach. if they study how many miles you cover by putting a little electronic box in your car maybe they can charge you appropriately for the amount you use the highway. there are privacy groups that say putting this device into cars means someone will be able to spy on you. guys, the nsa is doing it already. don't worry about the black box. >> and of course there was a day when just your taxes would pay for the roads. that's an interesting thought. we'll see you tomorrow. this was a man that once said i have a ba in dope and a ph.d. in soul. one of his classic lines. lou reed. lead singer of the band velvet underground died. the word icon, we throw it around a lot these days but there's little other way to describe lou reed. he influenced musicians from david bowie to talking heads and beyond that. velvet underground was backed and produced by andy warhol with the iconic banana on the cover of the first album. that album was a flop. it only sold 30,000 copies
, you can get a tax credit, right? >> you can, but a broker can help you actually get the tax credit. and the irs has a great website set up where you can actually calculate or your broker can help you calculate what that tax credit would be for you and your employees. >> that brings up a question we received on facebook. sherry writes, "i and my husband are self employed business/owner operators. we are self insured. is it better to continue with my regular insurance highmark or go to the government site?" how do you answer that, tom? >> every individual has a separate circumstance, and there's no true single answer that's best for any person across the country. the fact is, health insurance is complicated and ever more complicated today than 15 years ago, so you have to go through a complicated process, regardless of a individual, small business, large business. whether you're self insured or fully insured, you have to go through the process to figure that out. >> what's the benefit of me getting insurance through one of the exchanges, versus telling my employees, okay, you can go
and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools rather than defending this law. greg abott immediately filed an appeal to today's ruling. joining me now, msnbc and planned parenthood in houston, texas, one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. this must have been quiet a win down there today. >> yes, lawrence, thank you. this ruling is a victory for our parents. it's a ruling for women. it sends a clear signal across 50 states. it is unconstitutional for politicians to pass laws that take away the private personal health care decisions that women make in consultation with their physician. >> melanie, i just want to check one thing. the 30 mile rule of being knocked out, does that mean there won't be any facilities that will have to close as a result of any other provisions in this law? >> well, that remains to be seen. but what this does mean is that women across the state will have access to abortion care preserved for them. >> crystal, here is a george w. bush judge looking at what this lu legisla
or medicaid reform even tax reform. those things are not going to happen for the reasons we just described. getting a number to fund through 2014 and avoiding kind of the harsh realities of sequestration would be good goals according to republicans and even some democrats. >> you know, ryan, i kind of think getting rid of sequestration, even if it means no revenue, might be a good deal. the assumption has always been republicans would be hurt so badly by defense cuts we can extract something. rand paul doesn't care about the defense cuts. why don't we jettison some of the crap, speaking about defense cuts. he wants more defense cuts. the idea this is somehow leveraged is maybe not that accurate. if you can unwind sequestration or put in a better bargain, if you will, and not get revenue, it still might be a good deal for democrats at this point. >> not a good bargain for the tea party. if you want to look for a sign of how much less power the tea party has now, look at what tom cole said, both sides won. he said more revenue, higher taxes, if they can do away with sequester, which is more
their coverage. it's until they start getting the benefits of better coverage and the tax subsidies that come with it, which will make that coverage in many cases cheaper than the ones they currently have, that they won't understand or won't feel good towards obama, let's say. so that's why this whole rollout matters, they need to show the benefits of this in addition to the pain it was causing. >> still ahead the ceo of america's largest private health exchange joins us, how he is offering to bail out the government's troubled website. "morning joe" is back in a moment. ♪ [ male announcer ] you know that family? the one whose eye for design is apparent in every detail. whose refined taste is best characterized by the company they keep. well...say hello to the newest member of the family. the cadillac srx, awarded best interior design of any luxury brand. take advantage of this exceptional offer on the 2013 cadillac srx, with premium care maintenance included.

was a perfect fit for the tea party. >> he interrupted the tax money flow. tide goes in, tide goes out. in the temple, when he saw the tax collectors dragging the money out of the poor people and overturn their table. and once he did that, his fate was sealed. >> i don't know what that means. >> and today's top trender, cheap talk. i can't use the "s" word. >> oh -- >> they have crappy insurance. we're going to be getting rid of junk insurance plans that haven't delivered anything for the american people. conservatives won't trash junk insurance. >> you can keep the plan that you have and like, but there's a but in our health care right now? there's a but in the system? >> that's a big but. >> the community is welcoming the destruction of what are called, you know, the skinny plans. >> you find something goes wrong so you pick an enemy and you demonize somebody else. in this case, it's the insurance companies. >> this just kills the market. >> we chose those policies and yet the president says you didn't choose well. >> what else would you expect from the republican party but a bunch o
us it wasn't a tax when it was. how many times did he tell us you could keep your insurance when you can't. this is an epidemic of dishonesty. and yet reporters won't report it, and poor ed schultz is saying that it's just so positive that nobody dares talk about it. >> bozell is wrong on all accounts. across the board he's wrong. hannity has now been reduced to defending junk insurance policies. and i wonder if he knows that most junk insurance policies only last about a year, when people actually figure out they have been hoodwinked into a policy that doesn't cover snot. that's why obama care is good. sean, i know, it's probably a little over your head. but i'll give it a shot again. a few weeks ago, i asked sean hannity to go face-to-face with me in a debate. instead of accepting what he has decided to do, this is his -- comes back with a challenge, he's playing clips of my show in his media clip or whatever, in his segment. look, i'm about the truth. and it would seem to me that if i'm wrong on these things, that handy would want to go face-to-face with me. i mean, you know, i'm
businesses are going to be taxed heavily. that small businesses are going to see their rates go through the roof, and they're going to have to let people go. >> well, the fact is that anybody under 50 employees, they don't have to do anything if they don't want to. but folks under 25 employees, we're urging them to check object th on this exchange, because they could get some tax credits and they might be able to provide affordable health insurance for their folks at a lesser cost than what most of them are doing right now. >> so how could 400 businesses in kentucky have it wrong? why don't we have 49 other kentuckies across america? well, it's obstruction. that's the story on the ground in kentucky. but this is the story in washington. >> when it it comes to jobs, some have called the law the single biggest detriment to job creation in america right now. >> part-time workers, the poor, pay still have no insurance, but now they may have no job. >> jobs are being lost, premiums are going up. >> the real problem is we're driving everyone out of the individual market. >> it's time to revis
's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh urging people to avoid tax refunds as a ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. a two-week government shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. if the health care isn't dismantled. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington through baltimore and into town because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven't learned their lesson. they just got their hat handed to them with their government shutdown and the debt ceiling, and you'd think they'd be chasing it a bit, but they're going to keep this up. it's an ideological war they're fighting where these tea party members, they think the government is bad. not only do they think that obama's government is bad, any government is bad. so they want government to fail. which is
pass a budget that cuts things we don't need and closes wasteful tax loopholes that don't help create jobs so that we can free up resources for the things that do create jobs and growth. building new roads, building new bridges and schools and airports. that creates jobs. >> meantime, republicans are doubling down today on the problems that be have plagued the obama care website with senator dan coats of indiana delivering the weekly gop response. >> too many americans still cannot even access the online exchanges and for the few that have, their experiencing sticker shock. the president told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it it is more than just a website and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> well, the white house released a progress report late friday on the website fix saying it is improving with users now waiting an average of less than a second for pages to load compared to eight seconds in the first few weeks. teams are working to improve the application process and increase system speed and efficiency. another round of fixes
are not going to pay for the insurance in other states. we pay money for our federal taxes, we're going to get that back. you look at states like texas and texas is going to have all those texans paying for the insurance in california or in michigan? i don't think so. it's a great 2014 issue for both congress and for democrats running for governor. >> that's not the case. texas is not expanding their medicaid rolls. they're not giving them away because they're not expanding the rolls which is care cost for them, and you know the obama care only pays the bills for a short period of time. 90% but they don't pay the whole thing. again, you're asking people to expand the role of government, and in texas, they don't want to do that. they want to have private sectose sectors -- >> so they'll give those away. the texans pay those taxes. >> those tax dollars are not paying for obama care. >> let's not just talk about the expansion of medicaid, though. i think it's very easy to lose me and a lot of our viewers here. keep it to the big question, which is, how did this get botched and what are the conseq
, but it's going to be hard to find. >> well, there's a lot of money sitting offshore that's not taxed. that's for another discussion. i want you to come back. i enjoy visiting with you. we will do it again. mr. stockman, thank you very much. that's "the ed show." "politicsnation" with reverend al sharpton starts now. good evening, al. >> good evening, ed. >>> and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, the truth about the gop effort to kill obama care. it's not really about the health care website. it's about the entire law. today republican leaders made that clear. >> you know, the problem with obama care isn't just the website. it's the whole law. >> and the bottom line is the problems with obama care run deeper than just the website. >> hear that? this isn't about the website glitches. it's about scrapping the whole thing. never mind that 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now covered. never mind that insurance premiums are 16% lower than expected. the gop wants all this to wither on the vine. and they're offering no alternatives of their own. and today democ
to deduct all of that $40,000 for tax or that income is never taxed. that's a subsidy worth about $15,000, more than it costs to cover a family of four under medicaid. so this is a crazy feature of our current health care system. and i would note, the cruz's are probably not going to get to keep their health care plan. there will be an excise tax on these extremely high-cost plans that will push employers like goldman sachs to give their employees smaller health plans, pay them more in cash. so i think the president shouldn't have said if you like your health plan you can keep it. one of the key objectives was to change the way in which americans are covered in ways that cover more people, more reliably, at lower cost. and so some people will change plans because of that. >> absolutely. josh barrow, jared bernstein, i wish we had more time. we don't. but thank you. and we'll be right back. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the hea
it in the fiscal cliff bill when they extended permanently $4 trillion of tax cuts for the upper part of the households in america. low income people weren't going to be impacted anyway, we never should have extended those taxes. you can't get them back now. it's permanent. and so there's no revenue except trivial loophole closing which will never happen because the lobbies dominate the process. and then finally, if i could just say, president obama stuck his toe in the water on entitlement reform, but it was the wrong toe. he said, you know, chain cpi. well, that means the person on minimum benefits is going to get hit if they had no other income. $9,000 a year, they're going to get hit. whereas a retired in florida living on a golf course getting $50,000 a year on social security and medicare is going to barely feel the nick. there should be means testing where you take the savings out of the top. so what we have is a total stalemate. we're going to do nothing on entitlements. they're going to try to raise -- >> so your forecast from your answer is you think we're going to be doing
to delay the mandate tax. >> this has got to be delayed. >> there its no way to fix the monstrosity. >> nobody. ♪ >>> in 1985, the democratic governor of new york, mario cuomo attacked economic policies of ronald reagan in a speech he delivered at yale. governor cuomo said the reagan re-election campaign was filled with oversimplification and reagan policies if enacted would be harsher. that led governor cuomo to say perhaps the most memorable line of any speech. he said we campaign in poetry. but when we are elected we are forced to govern in prose. tonight, president obama stands accused of campaigning in poetry when he was campaigning to passion the affordable care act. >> if you look your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. period. >> if you have health insurance. nothing in the plan will require you to change what you have. >> when president obama was campaigning for re-election the affordable care act had not been fully implemented and said this. if you are one of more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep y
their families. meanwhile, these very same guys fighting against jobs programs wanting to give more tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. it is totally obscene. >> but, you know, senator, the food stamp cuts that will hit tomorrow will slash about $5 billion from the program. now, that's less than the $6.9 billion we spent in fighter jet contracts just this year alone. and get this. it's a fighter jet program that the pentagon doesn't even want. why don't they cut it from there? >> oh, well, al, i guess the answer has something to do with poor people and working people do not make large campaign contributions. our military industrial contractors do. billionaires do. the fact of the matter is that not only are we going to look at a major cut in food stamps tomorrow as you well know, the republican bill -- farm bill passed in the house calls for another $40 billion in cuts over the next ten years. so these guys at a time when many of our kids are facing real challenges getting the food they need, the nutrition they need, these guys are going to war against the kids. they want more and mor
in conjecture and self-promotion. take, for example, the leaks of romney's taxes. all they could do is find an unnamed third party source to claim it was my grandfather who was responsible. that's the bar they set for the level and quality of reporting. for the beltway audience, this is like candy, this is a drug. but what's left now? well, a bunch of soured relationships at a time when we actually should be finding common ground. mitt romney's taxes let alone who leaked them will never solve our nation's greatest problems. this written by political consultants for political consultants and only good for a week of georgetown cocktail spatter. to know what really went on, i know some of this isn't actually true. keep that in mind as we now spin. i would love your take on the book as i'm sure you read the excer excerpts. >> the thing that jumps out is how much and how hard he tried to vet chris christie and went through the process twice and rejected christie and then said, you got to look at this guy again, this is how we'll win the day to day war of media and chris christie will get you in
the case like the grimes campaign did, a state that takes in more federal money than it pays back in taxes damaged kentuckyians. statewide you can run that way. but these house districts it's hard to sell that story. >> david ignatius people talk about the republican party. there's so many different republican parties. i talk about, you got the governors. and the success of the governors that they've had. then you got basically the senate wing of the republican party and then the house wing of the republican party. and what works for one definitely doesn't work for the other and certainly what works for some house members actually undermines presidential candidates who have any, any dream of being able to compete with hillary clinton. >> we'll see if the chris christie wing of the party, the party that will talk about how to govern and make a big state like new jersey work if that gets traction. one of the things i've been following the last few weeks is the backlash in some hard line republican house tea party districts against those tea party hard liners. for example, justin amosh from m
used to work for have sold in the past. in fact, the majority of them will qualify for tax credits or subsidies to bring the cost down. so they will be paying less for better coverage. >> quickly, did the administration over-promise when they said repeatedly if you like your plan you can keep it? >> well, it was unfortunate language. because the president nor congress in this law can really control the insurance companies that well, that effectively. they control the health care system in many ways. they're able to get away with this, and they are, as we're seeing. >> right, it was a promise that they're seeing they could not themselves keep. wendell potter, thank you very much. >>> all right, congressman barney frank's name was brought up, cited as the authority, the man supporting the bill. but that is not exactly the case. he will be here to react coming up next. >>> a big day for congress today, back in the swing of things, back to work. house of representatives holding one of its first floor votes since the government shutdown ended two weeks ago. and what did they vote on? th
